|Profile / Bio||
I am an educational developer currently working at the Centre for Innovation and Excellence in Learning at Vancouver Island University. My role involves researching and deploying educational technologies, administering, developing and integrating elearning software and developing faculty and student competencies in the use of emerging technologies. I am currently pursuing my PhD in education with the Technology Integration and Evaluation (TIE) Lab at the University of Victoria. My research will take the form of a three paper thesis, with one conceptual paper and to empirical studies. My PhD work investigates faculty who are innovating with open educational practices as well as students' experiences in being engaged with open education. I have an interest in applying and contributing theory to the field of open education. I used activity theory in my masters research, and am exploring structuration theory in my PhD research.
